Absinthe best show by far. La Reve, Beatles Cirque show, Michael Jackson Cirque show, O Cirque show, Carrot Top, Vinnie Favorito also good. But if you're only going to see one, go to Absinthe.

Ka at MGM. Mystere at Treasure Island.

Paris has a new magic show called “Inferno”, we just saw it and liked it. Not a huge spectacle like the Cirque shows but not bad.

Personally I really enjoyed Jabbawockeez at MGM.

I like it too. However, one should note that some people may find the jokes offensive.

Beatles Love cirque is amazing!

Vegas has many great shows, kinda depends on your interests.

We have liked the various Cirque Du Soleil (spelling?) shows, some of them mentioned above.

Absinthe for sure.

The best free show is watching the guy with the sign that reads "Kick Me in the Nuts for $20". Pretty entertaining watching this guy earn a living.

Le Reve at Wynn blew my mind. I've seen it twice.

Mystere kinda underwhelmed.

I just got a flyer in the mail saying they completely re-did the Le Reve show with a new story/acts. Probably going to go check it out and see it, first time I saw it was about 5 years ago.

Absinthe great but not good for people who don't like profanity and non-PC jokes.

Michael Jackson and Beatles both great.

Magician Mat Franco very good.

Also enjoyed the ventreliqust from America's got Talent whose name escapes me... but he gets a little too political for my desire.

Also, Elton John EXCELLENT.

Piano Bar at NYNY is really fun too. Not a "show" but really fun.

Enjoy it's hard to go wrong... although we didn't really like Carrot Top.

Absinthe was great but it's a bit crude. If you sit near front make sure you have thick skin :twisted:

Le Reve at the Wynn is really, really, really cool. Also, there is not a single bad seat in the theater. It's small enough where the view is good from just about anywhere.

I like the blue Man group too but that was a while ago.

Really depends on what you are in to. A great lounge singer with an enjoyable show is Matt Goss at the Mirage. https://www.mirage.com/en/entertainment/matt-goss.html

Absinthe was great! Through a stroke of luck as I was walking back on that warm spring evening to the MGM Grand, the Bellagio fountain show started and the music was Con te Partiro . It was pretty magical on my last evening in Vegas.

The next best thing was the evening of comedy at the Laugh Factory in the Tropicana, that was really fun. I started a conversation with some random couple in line and they invited me to sit with them since I was by myself, they tipped the host and we ended up sitting in front and got roasted by the main comedian. Super fun evening.

I saw the Michael Jackson Cirque du Soliel show and I have to admit I was underwhelmed. People coming in very late/drunk and starting arguments with nearby seated patrons didn't help, but I barely remember the show. I think it was just way too loud and too much stuff going on.

One time on the Vegas strip was enough for the rest of my life, if I ever go back to Nevada it will be anywhere but there.

Brad Garrett's Comedy Club at MGM. If you catch a night when Brad is there, it will be a treat. He does sort of a Rickles-lite improv routine between acts, acting as master of ceremonies. Really funny the way he interacts with the audience.

Brad is the brother from Everybody Loves Raymond.

O was amazing when I saw it back in 2009. Any cirque show will be highly entertaining.

O by Cirque du Soleil
Mystere by Cirque du Soleil

Find tickets that are 45-50% off. I was able to get tickets at $50 range with decent seats (cat 2).

I'll echo the recommendations for Absinthe and O. I wanted to mention that the seats for Absinthe are very uncomfortable, so you may want to consider bringing a cushion with you.

Carrot Top exceeded my expectations the most. I thought he'd mostly be annoying, but I laughed myself silly.

Absinthe (Caesar's) is probably my favorite, like many here. O (Bellagio) is great, but very pricey. We've been to Mystere (TI) twice, as my 10 year old absolutely loves it, and my wife and I have seen Zumanity (NYNY) twice, and she took her dad a third time. It was great both times I saw it, but she says it was much better with the old host(ess). Penn & Teller (Rio) are fantastic, and they stick around after the show to meet fans.

I literally fell asleep during Ka (MGM). The stage was very cool, but the storyline was completely unintelligible. Criss Angel's Mindfreak (Luxor) was a very good show, but he's even more self-aggrandizing than a typical magician, so just be prepared for that if you go.

I've heard very good things about La Reve, but we haven't set foot in Wynn/Encore in almost five years, so we will likely never see it.
